Is QB Dak Prescott the 2020 Regular Season NFL MVP Favorite?

QB Dak Prescott is in the running to be the 2020 NFL MVP.

After throwing for nearly 5,000 passing yards and 30 touchdowns last season, Dak Prescott found himself in the running for the 2019 Regular Season MVP award. Baltimore Ravens Quarterback Lamar Jackson ended up winning that title, but Prescott should not only be in the running once again in 2020 but also be one of the favorites.

Love him or hate him, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the top players at his position in the NFL. He has the track record and numbers to prove it. Yet, for whatever reason, he’s still loathed by a large majority of fans around the Cowboys Nation. Would him winning the MVP award change that?

I don’t know if it would personally, but it would absolutely look good on his resume. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves and anoint him the MVP before the 2020 season has even gotten underway, let’s take a look at where Dak Prescott ranks among this year’s favorites.

Here are the Top 10 2020 NFL MVP favorites, per BetOnline

  1. Patrick Mahomes +400
  2. Lamar Jackson +800
  3. Dak Prescott +1200
  4. Kyler Murray +1200
  5. Russell Wilson +1200
  6. Tom Brady +1200
  7. Josh Allen +2000
  8. Aaron Rodgers +2200
  9. Carson Wentz +2500
  10. Deshaun Watson +2500

Dak Prescott currently sits third in the running to win the 2020 NFL MVP award, however, you may have noticed his odds of winning are the same as Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson, and Tom Brady. You may have also noticed there’s not a single non-QB in the Top 10. Running Back Christian McCaffrey (+3300) narrowly missed out, currently sitting 14th on BetOnline’s list.

I can’t argue with BetOnline’s current 2020 MVP rankings. I think having Dak Prescott currently sitting in third is about right. Having said that though, I would think his odds of winning are much closer to Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson’s then they are to Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson, and Tom Brady.

Prescott’s supporting cast increases his odds of becoming the 2020 MVP in my opinion. His offensive line, running back, and receiving core are all Top 5 in the league. Add in the fact he should be even better in the Year 2 under Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore and the fact Mike McCarthy should benefit him as well, and No. 4 becomes an MVP favorite in my way of thinking.

This is a good news, bad news situation for the Dallas Cowboys. On one hand their QB should be one of the best in the entire league in 2020, but on the other if he wins the MVP award it will increase his asking price for a long-term extension. It’s really going to be interesting to see how all of this plays out.

Do you think Dak Prescott will be the 2020 NFL MVP?

What do you think?

  1. I would love it as a Cowboys fan. When is the last time or any time a Cowboy player won an MVP? It certainly would be great to see a guy like him, who worked hard every day since high school to get better for himself & his team. The team would love one of their own getting the award & celebrating with them. The quiet majority of Cowboy Fans would love to have the award as more confirmation. It also would piss off Eagle fans & ruin their story about how in 2017, Wentz was having an MVP season until he got hurt & then Foles won the NFC Championship & the Super Bowl.

    No matter what happens, I want football to return & for the Cowboys to win at each level with games already decided because Dallas keeps getting 40 Burgers with every weapon. No blood pressure games. Score and just keep scoring. Then, use the run game. No more “Garrett” keeping it close games!

  2. I love the rose colored glasses of this blog. Geez, we can’t even get deep into the playoffs so they try to create all these what if scenarios to make fans feel better. It’s been TOO LONG! Get a ring or shut up. Stop making our team out to something it never lives up to. They’re good, not great.

  3. We swapped out Cobb for rookie Lamb. Big expectations for Lamb, of course, but let’s see how this plays out. Cobb is/was no bum. We also lost our ALL PRO Center. I like Baby Beard (if he is the heir apparent) and happy when we drafted him, but this is a pretty big negative until we see what Tyler can do. Also Prescott lost his “security blanket”, Witten. So is this offense better? One other thing to mention is about Zeke. To me, he doesn’t seem to have the speed, especially long speed, he had earlier on, and he has another year of wear on his tires. And not crazy about his OFF FIELD behavior, plus the virus. Also, just saw ANOTHER troubling story on him being high on dope.

    Prescott was touted as a MVP candidate last year also, UNTIL the Pats game, where he was exposed as being more of a pretender than a contender. Check out his stats in that game for yourself, SAFE TO SAY, PATHETIC. Then in the second Philly game. Again pretty pathetic.

    AGAIN, to me he is above the average, but certainly NOT ELITE. He gets overated and more attention because he is a DALLAS COWBOY! His glossy stats are a product of him playing in a WEAK DIVISION. And besides that, we played THE DOLPHINS and THE JETS last year. Not a tough schedule.

    • I think you need to pay more attention to how DAK played in those games!! That’s all I’m gonna say!! He’ll make you and your comments look stupid!!

  4. I loved Witten but it was time for him to go. No Yac at all and slow as molasses. I would be shocked if Lamb didn’t show out big time. Watch this guys tape he’s a flat out beast just get the ball in his hands. He’s an alpha Male big time. With u VAM on the Zeke concerns. He Looks like he doesn’t have that burst or speed he had first few yrs. Plus with his lack of discipline wonder whether he is ever in tip top shape. Fine line there if he is slacking off even a little in his preparation. Teams usually regret over paying for RBS. U can win a SB without an elite one and many teams have.
